Liberal Leader Shawn Graham says he would complete the restoration of the Petitcodiac River and work towards the completion of the Fundy Trail if he wins next month's election.

Graham says he would promote ecotourism and the province's clean environment to help grow the economy over the next four years.

In April, Graham's government began restoring the Petitcodiac River when it opened its causeway gates between Moncton and Riverview.
